More than just being a unifying president, leading presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe said she will be a "people's president."
Poe vowed to be a leader who serves the interest of the nation and not just the interest of a few, which she blames for the state of the country's poor.
"Ako ay Pangulo para sa lahat hindi para sa iilan," she said.
To prove this, Poe said she will put up a Malacanang office in different regionsto bring the seat of power closer to the people and to push for the province's development by going all-out on infrastructure.
"Kapag ako naging pangulo ay maglalagay ako ng opisina sa mga regions," she said.
"Ang gusto ko, unang-una, ayusin ang problema ninyo pagdating sa kahirapan, mas marami sa ating mga kababayan, sisiguraduhin ko ay may sapat na trabaho sa kanila. Maghihikayat tayo ng mas maraming magtatayo ng negosyo dito sa Cebu," she said.
Poe said a mass transport system must be put up in Cebu to ease traffic. Aside from the proposed circumferential road and Rapid Bus Transit system, Poe said Cebu deserves its own version of the MRT.
The senator assuredthat she will make sure that the country's riches will reach the marginalized sectors.
"Ang pera ng bayan ay para sa lahat at hindi sa bulsa ng iilan," Poe said.
